Customer Agreement [Updated: AUG 1, 2015]

Terms of Service

This Agreement (this “Agreement”) is a legally binding agreement between the International Gaming Association (the “Company” or “us” in shorthand), and the account owner (the “Customer”, “YOU” and “YOUR”). This Agreement governs Customer’s use of all paid project services.

All payments are non-refundable except during the first 30 days of service or on a case by case basis as determined by the Administrative Office. During the first month if the customer has a concern that the company has not reasonably resolved or if the customer is not satisfied with the service provided they can request a refund. THIS REFUND DOES NOT APPLY TO NOTARY, ON-SITE REPAIR AND CODING OR TESTING SERVICES; INSTALLATION OF SOFTWARE IS ALSO NOT INCLUDED IN THIS REFUND POLICY. THESE TERMS DO NOT APPLY TO ANY DONATIONS ONLY HOSTING SERVICE PAYMENTS AND MEMBERSHIP DUES.

1. Services. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Company agrees to provide services outlined in the order page, and any other services that may be ordered throughout the lifetime of the account. For public services or other communities or websites ran by the Company the Customer is subjected to this agreement upon use of the Services.

2. Term. The initial service term of the Agreement shall begin on the date that services ordered by the customer are setup. The Company will generate an e-mail message to the Customer announcing the activation of the Customer’s account (the “Service Commencement Date“). Every month, fourteen (14) days before the renewal date for each service, the Customer will receive a new invoice automatically for renewal of the service in question. To cancel service, the customer must place a cancellation request. This request MUST be received before the invoice is generated for the service to be canceled. Upon receipt of this message, the service will be canceled, and all data specific for that service removed on the service renewal date. The Initial Term and any Renewal date may be referred to collectively in this Agreement as the “Term“. For services with no defined start date or end date the service begins when the customer accesses the service and ends when the customer closes their account, submits written request to terminate or when the customer ceases to use the service. Any such activity that will fulfill the above is also referred to as the “Term”.

3. Payments.

(a) Fees. Fees are payable in advance on the first day of each billing cycle. The Customer’s billing cycle shall be monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually as indicated on the Order, beginning on the Service Commencement Date. The Company requires payment for the first billing cycle before beginning service. If the Order provides for credit/debit card billing, the Customer authorizes The Company to bill the displayed amount, in United States dollars to the credit/debit card on, or after the first day of each successive billing cycle during the Term of this Agreement; otherwise The Company will invoice the Customer via electronic mail to the Primary Customer Contact listed on the Order.

(b) Early Termination. The customer acknowledges that the invoice for services is based on the Customer’s order. In the event that The Company terminates the Agreement for the Customer’s breach of the Agreement in accordance with Section 9 (Termination), the unpaid fees for each billing cycle remaining in the Initial Term or then current Renewal Term, as applicable, are due on the business day following termination of the Agreement. No refunds for unused service will be returned on accounts terminated for breach of agreement.

All Payments must be made in United States dollars. The Customer is responsible for providing The Company with changes to billing information (such as credit card expiration, change in billing address) at its option, The Company may accrue charges to be made to a credit/debit card until such charges exceed $10.00. The customer will be sent an electronic mail to the Primary, and Secondary Customer Contacts if the payment is late. The Company may suspend the service without notice if payment for the service is overdue. Late accounts are sent two notices. A notice will be dispatched to the customer one day after the invoice is due to remind the customer of the invoice. A second notice will be dispatched two days after the invoice is due. After three days, the account will be suspended, and a fifty dollar ($50.00) late fee will be invoiced, and will have to be paid before account reinstatement. Disputes, or charge-backs will result in immediate suspension, with a Two hundred and Fifty dollar Research fee ($250.00) billed to the client, and immediately due. All billing disputes should be handled in the client system, under the business office queue. Billing errors will be promptly corrected with a possible compensation offered to the client. If the account is not paid in full after seven (7) days, the invoice may be forwarded to collections with a reasonable fee to cover collection agency fees, attorney fees, and court costs. Threats of disputes or charge-backs will result in immediate suspension. Please contact the business office for any billing related issues. The Company reserves the right to take full possession and ownership of domains of charge-backed accounts, and sell these domains to attempt to recover losses.

Bandwidth overages will be billed at Twenty Five Cents ($0.50) per gigabyte.

4. Law/AUP. The Customer agrees to use the service in compliance with applicable law and The Company’s Acceptable Use Policy which is hereby incorporated by reference in this Agreement. The Customer agrees that The Company may, in its reasonable commercial judgment consistent with industry standards, amend the AUP from time to time to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions and conditions on the Customer’s use of the Services. Amendments to the AUP are effective immediately. The Company may, or may not notify the Customer of an AUP amendment. The Customer agrees to cooperate with The Company’s reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. In the event of a dispute between The Company and the Customer regarding the interpretation of the AUP, The Company’s commercially reasonable interpretation of the AUP shall govern.

5. Customer Information. The Customer represents and warrants to The Company that the information he, she, or it has provided, and will provide to The Company for purposes of establishing and maintaining the service is accurate.

6. Indemnification. The Customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless The Company, The Company’s affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, and employees from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, fines, punitive damages, amounts in interest, expenses and disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever (including reasonable attorney’s fees) brought by a third party under any theory of legal liability arising out of or related to the actual or alleged use of the Customer’s services in violation of applicable law or the AUP by the Customer or any person using the Customer’s log on information, regardless of whether such person has been authorized to use the services by the Customer.

16. Miscellaneous. Each party acknowledges and agrees that the other party retains exclusive ownership and rights in its trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, inventions, copyrights, and other intellectual property. Neither party may use the other party’s name or trade mark without the other party’s prior written consent. The parties intend for their relationship to be that of independent contractors and not a partnership, joint venture, or employer/employee. Neither party will represent itself to be agent of the other. Each party acknowledges that it has no power or authority to bind the other on any agreement and that it will not represent to any person that it has such power or authority. This Agreement may be amended only by a formal written agreement signed by both parties. The terms on the Customer’s purchase order or other business forms are not binding on The Company unless they are expressly incorporated into a formal written agreement signed by both parties. A party’s failure or delay in enforcing any provision of the Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of that party’s rights with respect to that provision or any other provision of the Agreement. A party’s waiver of any of its right under the Agreement is not a waiver of any of its other rights with respect to a prior, contemporaneous or future occurrence, whether similar in nature or not. The captions in the Agreement are not part of the Agreement, but are for the convenience of the parties. The following provisions will survive expiration or termination of the Agreement: Fees, indemnity obligations, provisions limiting liability and disclaiming warranties, provisions regarding ownership of intellectual property, these miscellaneous provisions, and other provisions that by their nature are intended to survive termination of the Agreement. There are no third party beneficiaries to the Agreement. Neither insurers nor the customers of resellers are third party beneficiaries to the Agreement. The Customer may not transfer the Agreement without The Company’s prior written consent. The Company may assign the Agreement in whole or in part.

17. Service for Minors. (Please note that “YOU” and “YOUR” in this section refers to the Customer) Customers under the age of 18 are not allowed to sign-up for our service. By agreeing to the Terms of Service, you agree that you are over the age of 18. Users under 18 may get a parent or guardian to sign-up for them. By agreeing to the Terms of Service, you agree that you are over 18, and are able to legally enter a contract. Users under the age of 18 may be allowed to be the primary contact on an account providing that a parent or guardian is on the account and is the responsible party for said account. On occasion the company may offer public services; in order to use these the customer MUST be 13 years of age or older and have parental permission if not over 18.

18. Severability. A portion of this agreement deemed to be unenforceable, or illegal, will be reformed to the minimum extent necessary in order for this Agreement to remain in effect in accordance with its terms as modified by such reformation.

19. Domain Names. Clients who register domain names through The Company agree to the domain terms of service. These rules follow ICANN regulations and these terms.

20. Free Services. Customers must not use our RESELLER HOSTING ACCOUNTS to offer any of the following kinds of FREE services but are not limited to; free web hosting services, free e-mail services, free blogging services, free home pages, free image hosting, or free trial accounts.

There are several reasons for these prohibitions on free services. The reasons include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:

a. First, free services generally do not require any reliable means of identifying the person who registers for them. As such, it can be practically impossible to track down persons who abuse the free services.

b. Our customers, including (resellers) are all paying for prompt, reliable service and we have built a solid reputation for delivering excellent service to them. We cannot risk having unidentified persons damage our reputation.

c. Users of free services are notorious for registering for free accounts and immediately spamming or otherwise consuming very large amounts of system resources and bandwidth before their accounts are shut down. Such abusers often register for successive or multiple accounts and cause many problems for the servers and network.

d. Spammers, operators of phishing and pharming scams, distributors of spyware, viruses, Trojan horses, worms, and other malware, operators of illegal Warez sites, operators of illegal or unauthorized file-swapping or archive sites, and hackers frequently abuse free online services. Allowing free services would expose our servers to severe abuse and could harm US/ all of our customers, and all the customers of our resellers.

e. Free services lead to various forms of abuses that may violate criminal laws or even foster terrorist activities. Because such abuses violate applicable laws as well as our policies, we must prohibit them.

If the Customer violates this prohibition on free services, we may suspend their account immediately, with or without notice, as we in our sole discretion deem necessary to address the situation.

Additional Information. The Company reserves the right to request additional identification on any order. The request for additional identification will be sent to the customer before services are established

This Agreement supersedes and replaces any prior understanding or communication, written or oral. This Agreement may be modified at any time with or without notice of the Company.
